The President's Inbox

The President's Inbox

The President's Inbox is a podcast examining the foreign policy challenges facing the United States. 

Each week until the Iowa caucuses, host James M. Lindsay will discuss a major foreign policy issue with two experts who disagree over how the United States should respond to it in a special Election 2020 series of the podcast. Subscribe to hear debates about the U.S. role in the world, how the United States should handle a rising China, and more.

This project was made possible in part by a grant from the Carnegie Corporation of New York.
